The Languedoc has done it again.
I’ve long been a fan of this Southern region of France for its fresh, food-friendly, and inexpensive wines.
The other day, I picked up this bad boy from Bev Mo for 14 bucks…
Millegrand is an estate found in the Minervois appellation of the Languedoc. This red wine is a blend of 35% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 25% Carignan, and 10% Mourvedre. It was aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels.
Color: Dark ruby red with a few rusty notes near the edges.
Nose: Nice and chalky (You know I love chalk!). There are some nice sweet tobacco notes, and just a touch of ripe plum and blackberry fruit.
Taste: This is an earthy wine. Forest floor, mushroom, and tobacco for days. There are, of course, these lovely red fruits… but this wine is mad earthy.
Score: This was the perfect wine for a Tuesday night (which it is). Pair this one with barbecue, pizza, or burgers, and you will be one happy customer. Pick it up. 89

You know I love the Languedoc, but where do you find value?
